Rider jailed for dangerous riding
Pawel Zietowski sped, pulled wheelies, took selfies and generally rode dangerously on the M6
We love riding motorcycles anywhere and everywhere. But there’s a time and a place for riding fast and doing wheelies - it’s not the open road.
Sorry but the roads are dangerous enough at the best of times, so if you want to ride like a hooligan do it on private land.
If you insist on doing it on the road, then perhaps the story of Pawel Zietowski might be a lesson as to what could happen.
